"The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, which shines ever brighter until the full light of day. But the way of the wicked is like total darkness. They have no idea what they are stumbling over." Proverbs 4:18-19
The picture in this verse is that of the sunrise and the increasing of the light on the pilgrim path as the day advances. If we walk in the way of God’s wisdom, the path gets brighter and brighter and there is no sunset! When the path ends, we step into a land where the light never dims, for “there shall be no night there” (Revelations 22:5).
God has a plan for each of His children (Ephesians 2:10), and if we walk in His wisdom, we can confidently say, “The Lord will perfect that which concerns me” (Psalms 138:8). Our path may not be an easy one, but it will always be a fulfilling one as we walk in the will of the Father. This involves three responsibilities on our part: knowing God’s Word (Proverbs 4:1-9), trusting God’s providence (Proverbs 4:10-19), and obeying God’s will (Proverbs 4:20-27).
